Running since 2005, Physical Fest is a Liverpool based international festival, one of only two dedicated physical theatre festivals in Europe. It attracts participants from all over the world, in a celebration of a diverse range of performances, workshops, talks & debates. We also support artists & especially female artists from the north through associated bursary & participatory programmes.
Our vision is to celebrate the world’s most exciting, contemporary physical theatre. Bringing a variety of new work to the north for the first time, creating a festival that explores, questions, encourages & enables engagement with creativity.
The festival is bi-annual with a programme of workshops in every non Fest year! Check our this years programme in collaboration with the Unity Theatre. We have workshops including the amazing John Wright, Jamie Wood, and our own Tmesis Theatre!
Our next festival will be in 2023, if you are interested in being part of it, please invite us to see your work live, or join our mailing list to find our about open calls and opportunities for artists.
We look forward to seeing you at a Physical Fest event soon!
